On Thursday, December 6 at 7 pm, the Warren Twp Library will host Trenton attorney and former state assemblyman, John W. Hartmann who has written an engaging, irreverent and most unusual memoir called “Jacket”. Central to “Jacket” is the story of Hartmann’s client Nate Smith—wrongly identified in a robbery and locked up for a crime he didn’t commit. As Hartmann recounts his effort to overturn Nate’s conviction, he dishes out amusing anecdotes from his life in law and politics. Through Hartmann’s irreverent humor, he puts a human face on the dysfunctional New Jersey justice system. Hartmann’s self-deprecating wit and keen eye for all things absurd and ironic makes “Jacket” a compelling read for “Law and Order” fans. The prestigious Kirkus Review praised “Jacket” saying: "[Hartmann's] reflections are entertainingly scattershot, nimbly jumping from one impossibly absurd scenario to another, capturing the surreal wheels of justice in motion. A keen, lighthearted look at the human side of law".
